    This thing is in my country there is an ASUS service center, it cost to me cheaper than the MSI by 400$ having me of course upgrading the ASUS to 32 gb ram and 1tb ssd

    MSI We don’t have a nearby service center so in case of claims I will see hell of troubles, but I had two Msi laptops before last was GT63 7RE with 1070 whips I sold, and had no issues with them.

    I like Msi look and value for having Rtx 2080 and bigger HDD.

    The ge75-023 is being on sale on Amazon for 2708$ shipped to my country and the ASUS 2320$ shipped with upgraded to 32gb ram and 1tb ssd and 1tb hdd.

    What is your advise? I care about warranty but don’t really want or ran into issues with previous Msi laptop
